    Copyright.

    Please can I respectfully ask that any posts or threads on the A2OC are not "transferred" onto any face book site. This would be in breach of our copyright rules which are clearly stated at the bottom of the forum page and they belong to all of us. Any requests to use our material outside the perimeters of the forum should be made through the admin team.

    Many thanks
    Dave.

    Or any other site of any description! (but especially a facebook site, even more so when that site supresses the right to reply to libellous comments!)

    The colour codes are public domain. and was wondering if A2OC has permission to post official Audi brochures, wiring & parts diagrams on the forum?

    The colour codes, brochures, wiring and parts diagrams are in the "public domain". However, if a post is specifically created by a member ie Andrew "AJsellors" and it his colour code list with his misspellings (Castell Red) then it is of concern as to whether or not it is club copyright ie our possession . This specific post has been transferred to a face book site but it has not yet been established as to whether or not Andrew created it himself therefore the rights are wrongs are at this time debatable.

    The German word for castle is kastell I thought it begun with a C an easy mistake to make

    the rights are wrongs are at this time debatable.


    Everyone makes mistakes

    Copyright also belongs to whoever wrote it?
    going a bit extreme lately?
    If this has anything to do with anything else you should just put it out there?

    Or at least put something in the joining mechanism and name the copyright owner.

    Ive been a member for years and its supposed to be about sharing the interest of the Audi A2

    Copyright is very complex and is sometimes dependent when the original was created.

    Generally for written (literary) works it last until 70 years from the end of the year following the death of the author. This still applies where the author is an employee (e.g. of Audi) and his/her contract of employment assigns the rights to the employer. Only once the 70 years has expired does the works become "public domain". Even then, if someone copies it and publishes their copy then their copy is copyright for 25 years after the year of their publication (e.g. modern reprints of old music or the Bible).

    This is UK law. The Berne Convention is life of the author plus 50 years from death. German law may well be longer as in the UK.

    Plenty of websites explain this.

    Some companies are actively pursuing those who post copies of their technical manuals on the internet as they want to protect their repair franchises from loosing work to cheaper servicing companies or they simply want to force users to buy new items when old items break (not very green).

    Fuel Consumption for 1.4 TDi 75 SE: <sorry deleted - will try to reinstate>

    Was 62.5 mpg with Pilot Primacy Michelins 185/50/16 18V
    Then 58 mpg with Pirrelli P6000 Powergy but they are much quieter.
    Next 62 mpg after 5th gear change to 0.65 (Skipton) & remap of +20 bhp (Stealth) on a 4,000 mile European trip.
    Now Toyo Proxes T1R - also quiet.
